So I'm using the standard OpenGL/LWJGL setup

There's this effect I want to get, but I don't know how I should go about it
I have a texture that's either completely white or completely transparent
I want to make it so that it changes color over time
I know how the RGB color system works, so game logic isn't the problem

Which methods should I use to color this texture? Is it even possible to color an individual texture?

Thanks

Depends on your needs. Are you coloring the whole thing a solid color? Or is it a gradient, or a pattern, etc?

If you just need a solid colour, render a quad (or two tris) and modulate the vertex colours (glColor4f) over time.

The whole idea is that the color only changes where the texture is colored white

... Try giving us some more details if you want help.

Vertex colours will modulate your opaque white pixels; the transparent pixels will be ignored since their alpha will be zero.

I realized that setting "glColor3f()" before drawing my quads will tint my sprites in the way that I was going for. I wasn't clear on that before

Thanks

Are you purposefully trying to make your issue vague and ambiguous? Clueless Like I said...
